Victoria Falls




Victoria Falls “Mosi-oa-tunya” “the smoke that thunders”

A World Heritage Site and one of the natural wonders of the world, which is shared with Zambia. It offers one the highest global bungee jumping sites at the Victoria Falls Bridge. The falls are truly a magnificent sight, where millions of gallons of water plunge over 1.7km-wide cliff into the narrow gorge below. Some say the best way to view the Falls is from the air, either by aeroplane, helicopter, hot air ballon or micro-light. Other adventure activities are offered around Victoria Falls, these include white-water rafting, golf, canoeing, elephant rides, walking with lions and kayaking and game viewing in the Zambezi national park. For the visitor seeking less action on the river, there are a variety of cruises to be had on the Zambezi above the falls. The best known are the sunset cruises, during which one can enjoy the wildlife along the banks and a stunning sunset complemented by chilled drinks and light snacks.

Towering majestically is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which symbolises the final resting place for tens and thousands of Zimbabweans who sacrificed their lives for the sake of our freedom and independence, but whose remains are scattered in valleys, disused mines, caves, unknown graves and mass graves spread across the nation and in neighboring states.




Khami is dominated by a series of terraced stone ruins, often highly decorated. The largest comprises of three, tiered platforms that was the home of the King and his family. The imposing front façade marked the main entrance. Nearby are the Cross Ruin with its mysterious stone Dominican Cross and the Northern Platform once used to process gold. The Precipice Ruin was a ritual centre that has the longest decorated stonewall of its kind. The nearby Passage Ruin consists of two adjoining semicircular platforms accessed by a narrow passageway.
